A driver plowed through protesters in downtown Portland on Saturday. The old man made mistake by stopping his car and getting out.
They were literally one block away from the police HQ, but Mayor Ted Wheeler ordered Portland Police to stand down and let the rioting mob destroy the city, vandalize property, and assault citizens. Police rushed in to arrest anyone who defends themselves against the mob. If the police appease bad behavior they should expect to just get more of it.

A driver pushed through a group of protesters in downtown Portland Saturday afternoon. A KATU News photographer captured the incident on camera.
Hundreds of people were marching in the street to protest police use of deadly force a week after officers shot and killed 27-year-old Patrick K. Kimmons.
The driver was in a silver Lexus sedan when he or she drove into the crowd, striking a man and then accelerating down the street. More
Protesters blocked the road and directed traffic where to go during the #PatrickKimmons vigil. Needless to say, it went off without a hitch.

Why does Antifa never have a permit and is allowed to riot wherever, whenever they want?
Antifa protesters blocked traffic and almost started a riot during a Saturday march and vigil for Patrick Kimmons, a black Portland man shot by police on September 30 after he allegedly shot two people and approached officers holding a gun.
“Protesters Started a Riot in Downtown Portland!” tweeted videographer Brandon Farley, who, according to his Twitter feed, records “disruptive events in downtown Portland, Oregon.” The disturbing video shows protesters running down the street, and a group chasing an older white-haired man to his car.

The second video shows protesters blocking the road and trying to direct traffic during the vigil. “Needless to say, it went off without a hitch,” Farley wrote. More

You have every right to protest. You do not have the right to block the streets and you do not have the right to attack somebody. Eventually, somebody will be killed on one side or the other.
